Litigation Support

We understand how stressful a divorce or other business-related dispute can be. We’re here to give you peace of mind.

The stress of a divorce or business dispute can rock you to your core. It’s a tough situation, even if you knew it was coming. Figuring out what you need to do, who you need to talk to, and what information you need to find can be exhausting. The uncertainty of it all—and the roller coaster of emotions you feel—can be overwhelming.

Take control of your situation

The strength of your case often depends heavily on the strength of your financial information. What’s more, understanding your financial situation is key to knowing when and at what price to settle, or if trial is the better option. This is where we can help.

Our litigation support experts work alongside your attorney to provide an accurate assessment and analysis of your tax and financial positions. With years of forensic accounting experience in the Mankato and Minneapolis areas, we can assist in every phase of your case, including engagement planning and trial strategy.

If your case is mediated, we attend mediation sessions to advise you and your attorney as positions develop. If your case must be tried, we can provide expert testimony. When serving as a neutral expert, we prepare calculations for both parties and provide explanations for any financial issues that arise.

  • Business valuation
  • Property division and marital balance sheet analysis
  • Non-marital asset tracing
  • Income evaluation (for child support and spousal maintenance)
  • Standard of living analysis

Going through a divorce can be an extremely stressful time for you and your family and it often involves many complex personal and financial issues. With years of experience in family law, our team of professionals works alongside your attorney to assist with all financial aspects of your case. Our family law services include:

Spousal Maintenance and Child Support

Most family law matters involve some element of financial support and it’s important to ensure that the amount of support is fairly and accurately calculated. We can assist with determining income for support purposes as well as preparing spousal maintenance and child support calculations for settlement or trial. In addition, we can assist with determining the historical marital standard of living for the parties to assist with the preparation of budgets.

Nonmarital Tracing

Did you have assets before you were married? Did you inherit assets during the marriage? It is common for married people to combine these nonmarital assets with property they acquired during the marriage. We can assist with tracing these assets and determining the nonmarital value of your assets at the time of divorce.

Property Division

In a typical family law matter, the current market values of the parties’ assets and liabilities must be determined so they can be appropriately divided. We will assist with preparing marital balance sheets with current market values, as well the proposed or negotiated division of assets and liabilities.

Business Valuation

When the marital estate owns a business, the value of the business must also be determined in order to fairly divide the estate’s assets and liabilities. Our credentialed business valuation experts will determine the value of the business(es) involved in the matter, assist in reviewing opposing business valuations, and provide expert testimony as needed.
